The rich history of our company began in 1923 when our founder, Max Weinstock opened the first location in Newark, NJ.
Max’s son Herman also joined the family business in 1957. Herman’s strong sales skills helped boost profits so the company was able to open their first showroom. Ten years later, Max and Herman purchased the current East Hanover location and opened a “Mom-and-Pop” supply house in a portion of the 30,000 square foot building.
During the next decade, Herman manned the operation on his own, often leaving a “Be Right Back” sign on the door while he made deliveries. As business grew, locations were added and the company expanded. In the 1970s, the Weinstocks launched one of the first full-service showrooms – featuring vignettes with built-in displays of cabinetry, fixtures, faucets and accessories.
Herman’s sons, Jeffrey and Mitchell, and daughter Mindy, joined the family business as well. They made updates to the systems and created more focus on computerized processing and new locations.
Now a third-generation, family-owned and operated business, Hanover Supply Co. has three locations and a state-of-the-art 3,700 square foot showroom, 25 employees, 11 delivery trucks, and a total of 60,000 square feet of warehouse space.
